Expand the value of RISE with SAP by adopting the SAP Launchpad service


Please note that this blog was published prior to the re-branding related to SAP Build portfolio, which was announced at SAP TechEd 2022. SAP Launchpad service and SAP Work Zone come together under the SAP Build Work Zone brand, with two editions: standard edition (formerly SAP Launchpad service) and advanced edition (formerly SAP Work Zone).

You can learn more in this announcement blog post on SAP News Center on SAP Build.


Companies today are facing challenges due to constant and far-reaching changes in their technological, economic, and social environment. RISE with SAP can help them to turn challenges into opportunities and transform their business for sustainable success. The comprehensive offering of RISE with SAP does not only provide customers with a Cloud ERP for every business need, business process intelligence and analytics, but also with included services from SAP or partners.

Did you already know that there are also a few services on SAP BTP, which are free of charge and are included as part of the entitlements for all RISE with SAP customers? This is also the case for SAP Launchpad service, which is included in every RISE with SAP license (except NS2 and China, we are currently working on this) to help customers build a modern user experience, both on the desktop and on mobile devices.

RISE with SAP customers can use the SAP Launchpad service and SAP Mobile Start without additional costs and without consumption of CPEA cloud credits and enable users to find all relevant apps and information in one central location and seamlessly integrate content from various systems.

You can start now to make the best use of SAP Launchpad service in your RISE transformation!

Get started now and make the SAP Launchpad service your default user interface for RISE with SAP. Your users will benefit from all the advantages that the SAP Launchpad service brings:

  • Harmonized user experience in one central entry point
  • Seamlessly integrating SAP standard solutions with custom built apps and extensions
  • Native mobile access with the SAP Mobile Start app
  • Integration with central services like Notifications, Task Center and User Assistance

Blending content from new “RISE with SAP” solutions with existing systems in the customer landscape allows for a smooth transition to the Cloud for the business users.

      Hi Sibylle Brehm

      I have a RISE customer who purchased back in August 2021. Alongside S/4HANA PCE and other solutions, they also have BTP CPEA credits.

      Having read various community blogs like this article, it's unclear to them how they setup a BTP Launchpad service for productive use (i.e. not free-tier) without incurring additional costs.. so that the launchpad service does not debit quota credits from their paid plan.

      Are you able to help clarify please?

      Many thanks,


      p.s. Praveen Vinjamuri

      Hi Henry,

      as long as the customer purchased a RISE SKU that includes the Launchpad service and the entitlement is assigned to the right global account, this will automatically be treated as if they have a Launchpad subscription and therefore no quota credits will be deducted.

      Hope that helps.

      Hi Sibylle Brehm ,

      After the re-branding related to SAP Build portfolio, which was announced at SAP TechEd 2022. SAP Launchpad service and SAP Work Zone come together under the SAP Build Work Zone brand

      Is still applicable that RISE with SAP customers can use launchpad and Mobile Start without additional cost?

      Thanks in advance,
